    Allergies: Re: Possible Timothy hay allergy.

    This does sound like you have a Timothy hay allergy. Maybe you could just wear a face mask and wash your hands whenever you give your guinea pigs the hay. Is anyone else in your family allergic as...

    Adopting: Re: Finding a buddy for piggy is HARD.

    Yes I agree as well. Maybe take some pictures of your cage and show it to them. I’ve never heard of animal shelters declining adopters for having a 2 by 6 C and C cage.

    I know that it’s definitely not the hay. We have a rabbit and she eats the same hay as the guinea pigs, and no one in my family is allergic to her. We also handle bales of hay every Friday at a horse...

    Bonding: Re: New guinea pig

    If the loner pig seems really aggressive then it’s probably best to leave her alone. I know alot of guinea pigs that live alone due to aggression so it shouldn’t be much of a problem. It should be ok...

    Behavior: Re: Tickles

    Ahhh yes. Both of my guinea pigs HATE being petted on their behind. If I even start to pet that way, then they jump, do a flip and start teeth chartering at me.

    yeah, I’ve seen them at the zoo. I’m pretty sure that naked mole rats don’t live in Virginia. But anyways, they creep me out a bit.

    Hello! On my next door neighbor app, I came across this post. I kind of laughed at the description but then I wondered, could the animal she’s describing be a skinny pig? If not, any other ideas?...

    C&C: Re: New cage for Bubbles and George!!

    I love your cage but just a suggestion, you might want to put coroplast on the walls of the cage as guinea pigs tend to spray their pee a bit. Maybe you could just put some coroplast on the side of...
